Merry Christmas Dec 20, 2017

Y7 Disco Dec 12, 2017

In order for Y7 pupils to celebrate the end of their first term together, the 6th form social committee have planned a ‘Christmas Disco’ for our Y7 pupils to enjoy on Thursday 14th December 4-6pm in the Drama Hall. This was a highly successful event last year and we are sure that all pupils will enjoy it.

Pupils may stay in school at the end of the day and get changed in the gym changing rooms.

There will be a tuck shop available on the night for pupils to buy sweets and refreshments.

Tickets are available in advanced via ParentPay at a cost of £2.50 per pupil.

Thanks so much.

Toyota Dream Car Art Competition Nov 14, 2017

KS3 classes (up to age 15) There is an opportunity to win three prizes from this school alone, followed by entry into a National heat and an International heat. Could win a trip to Japan.


The brief is to draw and colour your ‘Dream’ car. No digital art or collage, all hand drawn and coloured. You need to consider ‘innovation’, ‘concept’ and ‘modernity’. Think outside the box to give your ‘dream’ car innovative, unique qualities. This is not about being able to draw a car accurately, it is about the ideas and how well you communicate your ideas. The size of your picture is either A4 or A3.


The deadline for your art is Friday January 19th.
